Administered by RedLine Contemporary Art Center as part of the The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Art’s Regional Regranting Program, the INSITE Fund awards grants ranging from $2,500 – $7,500 to directly support independent artists and artist collectives working across all visual media in the Denver Metro and the Colorado Front Range.
Funded projects challenge traditional notions of the visual arts by engaging communities in experiential art outside of the standard gallery setting. The INSITE Fund specifically supports public facing visual arts projects that take place beyond the studio, museum, art center or gallery, to make visible often unseen and under-supported artistic activity, and to foster new communities and audiences around the work.
This year the INSITE Fund engaged a diverse group of local and national jurors who selected twelve unique projects to support. This granting cycle reflects Northern Colorado’s diverse artist community—culturally, economically and geographically. The outcome is an exciting mix of photography, installation, sculpture, film, and more. As 2021 INSITE Fund grantee Gregg Deal shared, “I am grateful to have a vision supported by a grant like INSITE. Having the means to realize my newest work, the Indigenous Sign Initiative, isn’t just empowering as an artist, but creates the possibility of sharing Indigenous presence in spaces where that conversation doesn’t exist.” Gregg Deal, 2021 INSITE Fund grantee.
